Are you getting the antiquing bug? I am! Let's look at a few pieces of glass that caught my eye at the depression glass show, pieces that you might not see anywhere else! These first two are Mayfair blue from Hocking Glass. The blue is exquisite, a lovely shade of medium blue, not too dark, not too pale, just right! This first one is the sweet pea vase, definitely not easy to find nor a piece you would pass by!The next one is the flared console bowl, same gorgeous color and pattern. Another of my favorite depression patterns is Horseshoe, made by Indiana Glass in the early 1930s. Horseshoe pieces tend to have protruding seams that get rough, otherwise it would be one of the perfect patterns. The design is beautiful and the colors! It is hard to pick between the green and yellow. Speaking of green, Fostoria made Vesper in a lovely shade of green, plus the rich amber. This dealer had several rare piece including the ice bucket. Every once in a while someone asks for help identifying glass that turns out to be from Bryce. Bryce was active during the depression, eventually selling its Pennsylvania factory to Lenox, and was known for fine crystal stemware with appealing etches. This is Rose, one of the better known designs. I hope this helped you decide to go antiquing this weekend!
